Jack TeagardenJazz Maverick ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $14.99
Wonderful late work from Jack Teagarden – pulled from his excellent years at Roulette Records – which are maybe some of our favorite! Jack's hardly a maverick here – not really on the front line of jazz, but definitely finding a way to reinvent his sound for the 60s – with ... read more CD

Jack TeagardenPortrait Of Mr T ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful portrait of the later Jack Teagarden – that musician who'd matured wonderfully with age, and really brought the best of that experience to bear on his records like this! Jack sings on a handful of tracks, but really spends much of the record on trombone – blown with a style ... read more CD

Jimi TenorSaxentric ... CD
Herakles (Finland), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Jimi Tenor looks shrunken in size on the cover, but that certainly hasn't happened to his music – which just seems bigger and more expansive on this wonderful release! The set's still very much in the spiritual jazz mode that Tenor's been touching for the past decade or so – but it ... read more CD

Tenorio JrEmbalo ... CD
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A set that's maybe one of the greatest bossa jazz albums of all time – and a fantastic homegrown Brazilian effort that's quite different from the more commercial American bossa albums of the 60s! Tenorio Jr isn't just a hell of a pianist, he's a great writer and arranger too – one who's ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

Clark TerryClark After Dark – The Ballad Artistry Of Clark Terry ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
A great 70s session from Clark Terry – playing flugelhorn here with backings from Peter Herbholzheimer, and sounding wonderfully sweet throughout! There's a spacious, patient quality to Terry's horn that reminds us a bit of his gentler moments in the 60s with Bob Brookmeyer – and even ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Clark Terry & Bob BrookmeyerTonight ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer combination of talents – and one that made a few excellent records in the 60s! Bob Brookmeyer's got a cool, compressed tone – that great approach he developed on valve trombone in the 50s – and it brings a new level of sophistication to the trumpet of Clark Terry here ... read more CD

Clark Terry/Coleman HawkinsEddie Costa – Memorial Concert ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
An interesting tribute to the passing of pianist Eddie Costa – mostly because the overall feel is much more in a soulful hardbop mode, quite different than the modern and chamber sides that Costa cut during the 50s! Side one features work by the Clark Terry quartet – with Terry on ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)
Also available Eddie Costa – Memorial Concert ... CD 9.99

Dejan TerzicMelanoia ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2013. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Drummer Dejan Terzic has a nice way of putting together sounds and colors here – working in these angular modes that are sometimes choppy, sometimes cascading – and awash with flurries of notes from a group that's only a quartet, but which comes on with a much stronger presence! The ... read more CD

Theatre WestBow To The People ... CD
Black Fire, Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweet set of spiritual jazz funk – recorded by this obscure group who were part of the same DC scene as Oneness Of Juju in the mid 70s! The ensemble's led by singer/pianist Clarence Young – and has a very message-oriented approach – sort of a blend of Roy Ayers-styled jazzy ... (Soul, Jazz) read more CD

Three SoundsGene Harris & The Three Sounds Groovin' Hard - Live At The Penthouse 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Resonance, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rare live work from the legendary Three Sounds trio – tracks recorded at a small jazz club in Seattle, at a time when the group were turning out their classic albums on Blue Note and Verve! There's a looser, more laidback vibe to some of these cuts than those studio records – and Gene ... read more CD

Throttle Elevator Music with Kamasi WashingtonThrottle Elevator Music IV ... CD
Wide Hive, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
The best album so far from Throttle Elevator music – thanks to some fantastic saxophone from Kamasai Washington! The group was always pretty good before – but this time around, they really rise above their past – and also have Washington handling all the arrangements on the ... read more CD

Throttle Elevator Music feat Kamasi WashingtonRetrorespective ... CD
Wide Hive, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
Not a retrospective of the music of Throttle Elevator Music – as you might mistake from the title – but instead a fresh new album that features the group working tremendously with the mighty Kamasai Washington! Washington isn't just a guest, but a key member of the group – and he ... read more CD

Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
One of our favorite Cal Tjader albums ever – and one of the first to have his vibes working alongside Fender Rhodes! The record's a surprising little set from the start of the 70s – one that almost has Cal picking up some of the New York sounds of a few years before, then mixing them ... read more CD

Charles TolliverImpact (Enja) (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
Don't confuse this one with Charles Tolliver's album on Strata East of the same name – because this session's a completely different one for Enja, but equally great! The group here is a quartet – not Tolliver's usual Music Inc lineup, but a combo that features Alvin Queen on drums, Ron ... read more CD

Charles TolliverNew Tolliver (aka Compassion) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Baystate (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $26.99
An overlooked gem from trumpeter Charles Tolliver – not as well known as his Strata East sessions with Music Inc, but equally great! The sound here is a bit different than some of Tolliver's other albums of the 70s – as the group features the guitar of Nathan Page in place of the usual ... read more CD

Juan Pablo TorresRomantic Cuba (Mangle Instrumental/Grupo Algo Nuevo) ... CD
Areito/Malanga (Spain), 1975/1981. New Copy ... $9.99 14.95
Wonderfully sweet work from trombonist Juan Pablo Torres – two albums issued under a "romantic" tag for the Cuban audience of the time, but which have a very wide-ranging set of styles! Mangle Instrumental is from the mid 70s, and has a sound that's a bit like an Italian soundtrack ... (Latin, Jazz) read more CD

Ralph TownerMy Foolish Heart ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The guitar of Ralph Towner has been an important part of the ECM sound since the label's first decade – and here, after so many years later, it still comes across with a brilliance that few players can match! Towner plays both classical and 12 string guitars here – in that spacious, ... read more CD

Rebecca Trescher Ensemble 11Floating Food ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Rebecca Trescher strongly wields her clarinet on the cover – but throughout the album, her approach is much more subtle – and wrapped up beautifully with the other sounds from her Ensemble 11! The music is a mixture of jazz and larger compositional ideals – with the leader on ... read more CD

Dwight Trible with Matthew HalsallInspirations ... CD
Gondwana (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
A fantastic setting for the voice of Dwight Trible – one of the few contemporary jazz singers who inherited the style of spiritual jazz greats like Leon Thomas or Joe Lee Wilson! Trible's singing here with backing from a group that includes trumpeter Matthew Halsall, recording on Halsall's ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

A groundbreaking bit of free jazz from the UK scene at the start of the 70s – a record that not only set the tone for countless other improvised records to come, but one that also showed the world that England could really match the energy coming out of Germany and France at the same time! ... read more CD
